Hearthian Introduction

(this is a crosspost)

Hello everyone!

Now that we have zipped through the solar system, we’re going to take a look at the playable characters alien race, the Hearthians.

Hearthian Introduction

The alien race known as the Hearthians are an amphibious race with four eyes, little sense of self preservation, and great curiosity for the outside world. Their home planet is Timber Hearth, which was discussed in a previous update. On their redwoods-inspired home planet, the Hearthians work together through to reach a greater understanding of the solar system they live in.


Porphy, a Hearthian who brews sap wine.

Hearthian culture was inspired by the unusual mix of Apollo-era NASA with backpacking and camping at a national park. Sit out on the porch at sunset and roast marshmallows while you watch your neighbor test out their new model rocket thrusters. Because Timber Hearth has geysers powerful enough to send things into orbit, early Hearthians learned through trial and error how to launch things into space, and it wasn’t long before they started to build ships to explore their tiny solar system.


Marl is more than up to the task of cutting all the lumber required for any new projects.

The Hearthian space program, Outer Wilds Ventures, was founded by Hornfels, Gossan, Slate, and Feldspar. During its early years, Outer Wilds Ventures collected objects of interest (often Nomai in origin) and brought them back home, further enriching the culture and technology of the Hearthians. Many of these technologies have been used to enhance Hearthian exploration technology, granting systems such as artificial gravity or the ability to remotely retrieve a scout with warp technology.


The observatory’s lower floor functions as a museum of curiosities brought back from other locations in the solar system.

As the latest Hearthian traveler, you are the first to be equipped with a tool that will allow you to translate Nomai text - the first of its kind. You and your friend Hal developed this technology to gain a greater understanding of the ancient mysteries that lie dormant in the solar system.


The upper level of the observatory is where Hornfels studies the stars.

Before you can take off on launch day, however, you need to grab the launch codes from Hornfels up at the observatory, so make sure to say your goodbyes to the other villagers as you make your way up. You can play with Mica’s model rocket, hear about the other travelers from Gneiss, or play hide and seek with Tephra and Galena. Make sure to stop by your old flight coach, Gossan, for a refresher on your zero-g training, and check out the nearby scout launcher to get a feel for the planet outside of your home crater. Once you’re ready, grab the launch codes and go explore the Outer Wilds!

Brittle Hollow...Rocks!!!

(this is a crosspost)

Hello everyone!

We’re making our way to Brittle Hollow in this week’s developer update.

Meaningful Play

Our writer Kelsey Beachum will be presenting a talk at Meaningful Play this year, October 11 - 13th. This talk will address the challenges of writing for an open-world game and in telling a linear story through a nonlinear delivery. This would be an excellent talk to listen to for those who are interested in writing for video games!

Details about the event can be found here.

Brittle Hollow

Brittle Hollow is one of the most alien locations in Outer Wilds. From the outside, it appears to be a rocky planet with glacial poles, orbited by a volcanic moon known as Hollow’s Lantern.


The fragile geode, Brittle Hollow.

As time passes, however, it is revealed to be a planet-sized geode that crumbles to pieces as it is bombarded by meteors ejected from its moon. When a chunk of the planet’s crust takes enough damage, it falls into a black hole at the planet’s core. The interior of the crust is covered in striking crystal formations and a variety of Nomai structures.


Most of Brittle Hollow’s fragments destroyed.

Brittle Hollow’s geode crust is made almost entirely from an extensive rock kit. The rock kit is composed of seven different sets, each defined by its size, and within each set there are around eight variations of the rocks, totaling over 50 pieces. All of these pieces add up to a highly adaptable kit that works to support the hand crafted level design.

The crystalline portion of the crust uses the same custom BRDF shader we talked about in our previous update, which allows us to give it a unique lighting model that appears to refract and scatter light in unusual ways.

Other than the modular rock kit that is unique to Brittle Hollow, this planet’s poles are capped with snow. The glacial poles also contain many modular ice chunks, combined with a lot of custom work to carve out their interiors. Using Brittle Hollow’s unique rock and ice kits the team was able to support the complex nature of the planet’s level design.

PAX West 2018

Just another reminder that Outer Wilds will be at PAX West! More details in the coming weeks!

PAX West is August 31st through till September 3rd 2018 in Seattle, WA.

That’s the End of This Update

Join us in another two weeks for another development update. Have a great weekend everyone!

Cheers,
